WHO WOULD I BE WITHOUT HER?
Désirée, my sister.
I’ve faced oceans, storms, tsunamis, and unfathomable abysses in my life. But if I hadn’t had her by my side… I don’t know where I would be now. Sometimes silent, sometimes too noisy, Désirée is the tangible and incontrovertible presence in my life.
A presence I wish for everyone. Just to let you taste its essence, here is an excerpt from the letter she wrote to my son Ariel for his second birthday.
“Learn to trust only what you feel, because your emotions are the only true compass that life has given you, and if you listen to them and follow them, you will always be satisfied with yourself and you will hardly make wrong choices. And when this happens, you will know how to learn from your mistakes with serenity, without getting discouraged, but finding new energy to continue your journey. […]
And do not let resentment and anger pollute your days, but love, find your love within yourself and give it to yourself and others. It’s the greatest gift you can give yourself.”
For the record, Désirée is a highly trained psychologist and psychotherapist, the most badass and incredible one I’ve ever met. If you want to know her better, click, click, click!
GENERALLY, I WOULD BE NOTHING WITHOUT MY
My origins. My roots.
They are the ones who support and bear with me every moment of the year! 🙂 And that’s why I introduce them to you with great pleasure. In addition to my sister Désirée, whom you already know, here is my mom and my Brazilian big brother, Denner! Ah… there would be so much more to tell here too!

“Every time I rise I see you falling
Can you find me space inside your bleeding heart
Every time I rise I see you falling
Can you find me space
Find me space”
